Government's Energy Policy Facing Criticism

The new energy efficiency scheme which was announced by the Chancellor on Wednesday has been criticised by Citizens Advice who fear that it will result in fewer homes being insulated. The chief executive of Citizens Advice stated,

" Making homes more energy efficient is key to achieving long-term savings on energy bills so it is important the remaining budget is spent on those who really need it."

The new scheme has been designed to replace the Energy Company Obligation  scheme (ECO) which is currently in use. The ECO has required suppliers to provide energy efficiency measures to households including cavity wall and loft insulation with part of the scheme being targeted at vulnerable customers. The ECO is currently estimated to add approximately £36 per year to average energy bills. The new scheme which is to replace the ECO has been costed at £640 million and it will target approximately 200,000 homes per year. However, the worry is that through the new scheme fewer homes will receive help.
